Remember To Check-Off $3 On Your 2020 State Tax Return

Posted in Main

The Commission reminds Hawaii tax filers to check off the $3 “Yes” checkbox on your 2019 state tax return which permits $3 from state funds (or $6 if married and filing a joint return) to be allocated to the Hawaii Election Campaign Fund.  The health and sustainability of public funding depends on greater participation of Hawaii taxpayers in checking off the $3 checkbox. Checking off this box does not increase your tax or reduce your refund.

What You Need to Know about the Hawaii Election Campaign Fund

By marking the $3 “Yes” checkbox for the Hawaii Election Campaign Fund,
you support the work of the Hawaii Campaign Spending Commission.
The Commission serves Hawaii citizens by helping to ensure that:

♦ Campaign contributions and expenditures are lawful and transparent; and
♦ Qualified candidates have an opportunity to run for office and receive funding for their campaigns.

Choose “Yes” on your tax return

It does NOT reduce the amount of your refund
or increase the amount of your tax payment.
